Intrinsically Safe Barriers feature redundant outputs.

May 2, 2013

Model EB3C discrete input/output barriers have redundant outputs for use in hazardous locations. Barriers can be combined with one another or with additional industrial automation and component devices for flexible design of industrial equipment. Product's hazardous side operates below heat- and spark- producing energy levels, so input and output devices do not require hazardous location ratings. Units have European ATEX ratings, UL Class 1 Zone 0, and are IEC60079-compliant. Read More

Magnetic Safety Interlock Switches feature non-contact design.

November 23, 2012

Designed for applications where no contact is desired between switch and actuating key, Series HS7A-DMC measures 7 x 16 x 51 mm and works well with safety relay modules, while Series HS7A-DMP features 3-contact design. Auxiliary contacts enable PLCs to monitor door status as operation signals can be read directly by controllers. Typical applications for switches include those where there are alignment issues, there is zero operating force, or doors are subject to heavy vibration. Read More
